Advocacy in Washington, DC

/
Even with the closures, our legislative work continues. Because of the overwhelming interest in our Nigeria missions and concern for the welfare of persecuted Christians in Nigeria, I began a post card campaign to President Trump. President Trump has already taken some actions to send a message to Nigeria!

Bethlehem, Diaper Program and the Coronavirus

The coronavirus was introduced to the Bethlehem area by Christians on a pilgrimage from South Korea. The situation in the West Bank comes just as we had begun a diaper program at a nursing home for very elderly Christians who are in need of constant medical aid.

The Coronavirus, Fear and Market Insanity

/
Fear is more contagious than any virus could ever be, and the media has really fed the fear factor for the coronavirus. Here are my frustrations and concerns with how the coronavirus has been handled in the US thus far.

The Chairman's Report for February 28, 2020

/
New Islamic terror attacks in Nigeria – Trump issues travel ban / Islamic terror attacks west of our orphanage in Plateau State / Stop Nigerian oil exports until Muslim President protects Christians! / Work on Capitol Hill does make a difference / New needs in diaper program

Trump's Travel Ban / The Plight of Nigeria Christians

/
The travel ban proclaimed by President Trump, and the addition of Nigeria to the “Special Watch List” of nations that violate religious freedom are both steps forward to confront the Sunni Muslim president of Nigeria who allows the attacks on Christians and actively suppresses the Shia Muslim minority. Still, much harsher action is needed by the American government.

Work in Washington Continues

/
As president of the Religious Freedom Coalition I make sure that we sponsor special events held by the IRF such as the meeting held on February 4th. The results of the February 4th meeting we sponsored were made very clear the next day when Secretary of State Mike Pompeo announced the launching of the International Religious Freedom Alliance (IRF Alliance).
